A Kind Word - Rock, Paper, Puppies!

Mar. 10th, 2008 01:57 pm A Kind Word

Have you ever had a compliment that came at the most-needed time?

I just did, and it made an otherwise terrible day, a bit brighter.

Of course, it's always nice to hear that you're a really good writer. ;)

Journalists rarely receive positive feedback – but when they do it means a lot. It reinforces for me to always remember the person behind the article.

Just one more thing to remember when I'm famous! :p

Sorry to hear that you were having a terrible day, but glad that someone took the time to give you some good words. It's always nice to remember the person behind, no matter what the profession :) Here's to some more sunshine in your days.

I was once asked to deliver a sermon in the absence of our regular minister. The whole topic was "be kind to one another, tender hearted...." By the end of the sermon, I was crying and pointing out people in the congregation that I had, perhaps, not thanked enough for their kindnesses.
